About This Quiz

You are a dog, clearly. If you are at all confused by this, you aren't alone. We weren't counting on many dogs using our site, but we're glad you're here. Maybe we are wrong, and we only had you confused with a friendly pooch, which is a kind of a high compliment when you think about it. Either way, knowing what kind of dog you are can be confusing. The task before us then is to work out what kind of dog you are.

Regardless of your actual status as either a human or a dog, you should probably know what kind of dog you are, or what kind you would be anyway if you were a dog. Dog breeds are as varied and diverse as people after all, and you can learn a lot about a person by the kind of dog they own. Sorry! We know that if you are a dog, the "ownership" issue might be a little touchy, but then, dogs did effectively domesticate themselves about ten thousand years ago, so take it up with the ancient man if that bothers you. Don't worry though, because you're a very good dog! Very good!
